Best  Practices for Avoiding Catastrophic Arc Faults

In the U.S., about 2,000 arc burn related injuries require hospitalization, according to reports. The impact of such injuries on workers has become a major concern, particularly in regard to medium voltage arc faults. While these occur much less frequently when compared to low voltage equipment, the potential harm to both equipment and personnel is much higher.

Currently there is no agreed upon standard for arc resistant medium voltage drives. There are, however, solutions claiming some form of arc resistant capability. The paper “Arc fault-resistant cabinet solutions for medium voltage drives” explores both the causes of arc faults and the solutions that can help protect personnel from injury.
